We understand that not everyone is a coffee connoisseur. So when it comes to brewing a batch of coffee using a drip (traditional) coffee maker, you may be wondering how much coffee should I use? As with most things in life, it depends on your preference. :)
A general rule of thumb for brewing coffee in a drip coffee maker is to use 2 tablespoons of coffee per cup. Note that the drip coffee maker cups are 6oz not the standard 8oz. For example, if you are making 10 cups of coffee, then you would use 20 tablespoons of coffee.
Give it a try! If it is too strong, you can always add hot water to your batch of coffee until you meet the desired taste.
We always encourage everyone to try our coffee BLACK before adding cream and/or sweetener to their coffee. All of our coffee have a unique flavor profile and we would like you to experience those flavors.
If drinking your coffee BLACK is not your thing, do not feel bad. We slide in some cream and sweeteners into our coffee from time to time.
